It's 0-0 after 1, but lots of cheering
By Richard Durrett
DALLAS -- The Stars are outshooting Anaheim, 13-6, after one period, but we're scoreless at American Airlines Center.
Still, lots of buzz in the building tonight because the Stars are showing highlights and facts from the careers of Mike Modano, Marty Turco and Jere Lehtinen. All three have played well. Modano looks like he definitely has his legs tonight and has had a few scoring opportunities.
Modano got the biggest ovation near the end of the period, when some of his 15 franchise records were put on the big board.
The Stars got a late power play with 39.6 seconds left when Loui Eriksson was a victim of boarding. It will be interesting to see if young defenseman Philip Larsen gets some power play time when the second period resumes.
